Concert: Farah Siraj
New York, New York, USA
Named Jordans “Musical Ambassadress”, Jordanian virtuoso Farah Siraj balances a career that spans the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Farah has performed at some of the worlds most prestigious platforms, including the United Nations, Nobel Prize Hall, the World Economic Forum, the TV show Good Morning Live in the USA, MBC TV in the Middle East and the Antena de Oro Awards of Spain. In addition, Farah represents Jordan annually on United Nations World Peace Day.
Farahs music often expresses the reality of war and raises awareness for the urgent need for peace. In recognition of her humanitarian efforts, Farah was invited to perform at the 2012 United Nations Humanitarian Awards in New York under the patronage of HE Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon. In addition, Farahs music was played before the United Nations Security Council before passing a legislation regarding the genocide in Darfur.
